Terminal indeed refers to a train station. The Osaka Abenobashi Station is the Osaka terminal for the Kintetsu Minami-Osaka Line. The Kintetsu Corporation owns the line and the building on top of the station. The tower replaces the old front part of the old terminal building, the Kintetsu Department Store. The actual station is located under the old part of the building that hasn't been demolished and will be functioning as a station and a department store during the construction. When it's completed the lower floors of the new tower will be linked with the old building to form 1 big store again. The station will remain on the current location, this means that there won't be a station under the tower.

This answers partly also this question.

Osaka has already a cluster.
It's the Kintetsu Cooperation that is developing this tower. Since this is their main station and department store they decided to create something huge on this location and not somewhere in the established areas. It's also located just outside of the area that is affected by the height restrictions that are in place around Osaka Airport that limits the height of the towers in the center of town.

And it will likely remain a lonely tower, it will only be accompanied by a few almost 100m high residential towers in the neighborhood that are under construction right now. But I don't see any other tall developments in the neighborhood anytime soon.

Thanks for the info, Momo. I love how quickly things go up in Japan. Seems like only a few months ago, there was absolutely nothing in the place where the Tokyo Sky Tree now stands.

Go Osaka! But I'm hoping Tokyo gets more tall buildings, too!

It usually takes ages before the construction actually starts, then it takes ages until it comes above ground. But when it comes up it indeed goes very fast.

And it's not really a problem imao!

I'm not telling that to you Momo, but to everybody wondering why it's not build in a "cluster"
These issues in urban composition where the skyscrapers should be packed in one area (the tallest in the middle and then gradually decreasing toward the periphery of course :p) are boring.
Though I'm not telling this is bad to have clusters (connected with mass transit systems)

Just let the city develop its own way, according to its inhabitants initiatives, either public, private, simple citizens, investors etc.

The design is nice and seams to be well integrated into the existing structure. I like the skhygardens on top also.

BTW, that Louis Vutton billboard shown on post 266, looks so randomly located.

It's not as random if you know that it's the part of town where all the luxury brand flagship stores are.

Well, that's why I said 'looks' not 'is'

The hotel in the tower will be the Marriot

Wow, really? The district doesn't look that exclusive to me at all... but I suppose this is a common-day fact in Japan - it's tiny everywhere.

Especially when you are building in a seismic zone. I'm impressed at how tall they are willing to build this. I know the Tokyo Sky Tree is much taller, but it isn't an office building. Heck, even that tower in Yokohama that is a bit shorter than this is still impressive.

A scaffolding structure has been put up on the old building.



This is because at this height of the tower 1 tall floor sticks out over the old building.

Remember the new pedestrian bridge over the roads, the first pieces are now being installed.
